Eastern Wishes at I-Avenue, Bukit Jambul, Penang

Another day, another time was my visit to Eastern Wishes for my mother's birthday. We were spoiled for choice and what is nice about this place is their prices are reasonable and it tastes real good. I was perturbed as my first post on this place 2 years ago was robbed of its pictures. Read about myTOLD:Eastern Wishes 2011, my apologies that you will not able to view the pictures of the food. It vanished from the face of the web and I was not able to uncover it anywhere. Sadly, I was not able to find my backup pictures as well. I asked Google about it but to no avail, there was no reply. Bygones be bygones, so here is Eastern Wishes in 2012.

Over a span of time since they opened, they have expanded another section, more tables for more customers. The place is rarely empty therefore traffic is good for them. There is no free WIFI service probably because they cannot afford for us to overstay our visit. :)

Curry fish, just in case you unsure.

If you would like a view of the full menu, head over to It's About Food Blog.

Kim Hee Chinese Restaurant, Prai, Penang

A drive to Prai for a church meeting would definitely be accompanied by dinner and an opportune time to try a place I have never been. Like my blog motto says, " she don't seek them out, it's part of her lifestyle", truly it is as it is. So here we are at Kim Hee Chinese Restaurant taken by one of the church member, Lai Khoon from Peniel Church. 

Here is the setting as we walk in and obviously it's a place where wedding functions are held in this area. A typical nice layout of the tables and stage area. 

Here's their information right on the napkin.
I practically drenched my small portion of rice with this curry as it was so appetizing. Love it!
Claypot Curry Fish
Nothing can go wrong with asparagus and it's fresh and nice.
We were eating healthy dishes that night, steamed and good choice of protein and carbs yet as simple as it is, it was also very tasty and we finished with some complimentary fruits. We were stuffed! In a good way.
Hot plate Tofu
Steamed Egg Dish

A good place to try if you are in Prai, a great place for company functions and so on and the prices are reasonable and food is commendable.

Secret Recipe 15th Anniversary

This is the first time I lined up for some promotional offers(knowing that it would be a long queue), be it retail or food. One morning, I found myself among these people at Secret Recipe, Gurney Plaza. I was early so it wasn't a long wait or I would probably scoot off.

Secret Recipe has been known for its delicious cakes, especially its cheese cake in my opinion. In conjunction with its 15th Anniversary, Secret Recipe is offering 'Buy 1 Free 1 Marble cake' And here is my line when I first reached.....

Getting closer to the counter......

Loads of boxes coming in and the manager and staff are busy unpacking and repacking the cake into their signature Secret Recipe boxes.

It was so cute of the staff to say thank you to me when I asked them to write 'I Love Secret Recipe' on one of the cake. Such appreciative person (first from the left).

Apparently, I was the 40th person to purchase the marble cheese cake. When I came at 10.50am, it felt like the crowd was around less than 30. Service was quite prompt and it would have been faster if customers made payment with cash.

"Time for the opening...can't wait to sink my teeth in"


Love the cheese melting in my mouth, the sweetness was accurately right for me. Hooray!!!

Morganfields, Gurney Paragon, Penang

Copyrights of Morganfields
Morganfield stands at a strategic position at Gurney Paragon and this American restaurant serves western food from appetizers to steaks, salads, burgers and their signature dish ~ Pork Ribs, the sticky bones!

They have an array of wines for you to pick with your meal and music to accompany and lighten up your day. With the jukebox playing on and on, it makes my food experience more enhanced. Service was a little slow unfortunately but everything else was great.

This is their signature dish, the Sticky bones and without a doubt its delicious. It is RM 68.90 for a full rack.  It is served with the spicy flavour of black pepper, red skin mash potato and some fresh garden salad.
Smoked Peppercorn Spare Ribs(Half Rack) - RM38.90
Chicken Roulade is a meal consisting of chicken thigh stuffed with sausage wrapped with bacon served with red skin mashed potatoes, garden veggies and pommery mustard sauce. An interesting taste to it however I prefer to share this dish with friends or it can become a bit overwhelming. While eating just two will leave you satisfied, eating all will have you feel otherwise.
Chicken Roulade - RM 32.90
Time for desserts and one of our pick for today is Bread Pudding served warm with vanilla ice cream and whiskey sauce. Sweet tooth lovers will love it.
Bread Pudding -  RM12.90
Chocolate Lava cake is rich in its chocolate cream, tasty as it is moist and complete with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Surely as the name says, the lava oozes out temptingly to the plate. One will be satiated after having a go at this dessert.
Chocolate Lava Cake - RM 14.90

Refreshing drinks like Lipstick - RM 14.90, Virgin Apple Mojito - RM 13.90
